Twilight of a New Era (1914-1964)
In hindsight for many contemporary observers and historians, World War I was an inevitable event that would happen anytime. It could probably have started in the powder keg of Europe (the Balkans) or any other place. Too many causes or long term conflicts lead to this. The tensions of the naval arms race between the United Kingdom and Germany, unsolved territorial disputes, intricate system of alliances, internal political tensions, nationalisms across Europe, economical and military rivalry in industry and trade, imperial and colonial rivalry for wealth, power and prestige and colonial expansion disputes. 1914 is considered by many historians and laymen as the end of an era. Just picture that general optimism in 1910s in the advancement of society was replaced by sensation of pessimism and decadence in the 1920s.
The Point of Divergence (POD): What could have happened if the Archduke wasn't assassinated? This alternative history explores and develops that idea and the possible events that follow (butterfly effect, hinge moments and alternate trends). The main purpose is to imagine and built a World that would follow another path.
